EMC coating finishes for moulded enclosures from Vero Technologies.

Why should we pay particular attention to the EMC characteristics of an enclosure?

Design and selection process needs to address a number of requirements: mechanical, aesthetics and crucially, electromagnetic suitability. Of the three, the electromagneti compatibility aspects are often inadequately considered. The EMC requirement can be triggered by a number of factors such as the need to shield the internal components that may malfunction due to external fields. EMC screening may also be as a result of regulatory compliance – strict regulations exist to ensure no interference affects other systems.

This highlights the need to consider emissions and susceptibility – both of which can be controlled by suitable EMC enclosure design. The screening will constrain the...
